    Do not eat the vegimite nor drink Fosters, these are Aussie jokes we export to the rest of the world.

    Fosters because we value beer to much to export the good stuff.

    Vegimite because it is the gunk left over after you make lots of beer. What could be better for breakfast?

    Remember your swimming togs for the showers (no curtains apparantly).

    As they passed a law against 'annoying' the pilgrims (including slogans on Tshirts), I decided to spend the time in the Pilbra playing with trains.

    Careful with the lingo, 'snatch' (or thong etc) may not mean what you think it does down under.

    Was watching the coverage of the Pope's arrival on TV yesterday, and one of the hosts was talking about the enthusiasm of the young people as they arrived. Said he talked to a girl from Singapore, around 20 years old, who told him about her and her friends trip over to Sydney.

    What are the chances?

    None Laserlight is in fact a bloke. However they may know each other...

    Btw, was the pope wearing thongs? You can never tell with that dress he wears. But maybe he lift it... *ah! i do miss the bloody aussies!*
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.
